But when confronted with crushing adversity, he inspired his crew to work together to survive against incredible odds. While stranded on an ice floe 1,200 miles from civilization, Shackleton's discipline, fortitude, and heroism overcame months of hardship and peril to get all his men to safety. Here, in this brief eBook, Harvard Business School professor Nancy F. Koehn writes that his is an example from which every leader in today's unstoppable turbulence can learn.

A vivid account of Ernest Shackleton's 1907 Antarctic Expedition, and the cases of Mackinlay's single malt whisky that he left behind. The incredible tale of Antarctica, malt whisky and an epic journey. Sir Ernest Shackleton's world fame is founded on the Endurance expedition of 1914-17, an attempt to cross the Antarctic continent that was foiled by the crushing of his ship in pack ice. The heroics that followed ensured that Shackleton and his men would forever have a place in the annals of polar history and world exploration. But Shackleton had come south seven years prior, leading the 1907 British Antarctic Expedition and targeting the South Pole from the opposite side of Antarctica. Rarely did Shackleton consume strong drink, and on his expeditions he tolerated only a 'mild spree' at times of celebration. But in 1907 25 cases - 300 bottles - of Rare Old Highland Malt Whisky whisky, three cases of which would ultimately lie forgotten beneath his hut at Cape Royds in the McMurdo Sound region for over 100 years, were loaded aboard his ship the Nimrod. The discovery of the whisky in 2007, and its subsequent reblending by the Mackinlay distillery, inspired Neville Peat to rexamine and explore Shackleton's first Antarctic expedition, the 'heroic' era of Antarctic exploration, and the craft and lore behind Scotland's finest dram.

The task of the Ross Sea component of the expedition was to lay the all-important depots in support of the traverse party to be led by Shackleton. The party was dogged from the outset by lack of funds and inadequate preparation. Matters were made even worse when, in May 1915, their ship "Aurora" was carried away from its winter moorings, leaving ten men stranded and without proper equipment and supplies. At great personal hardship and cost they went on to lay the depots across the Ross Ice Shelf to Mount Hope. Three men died during this courageous and perilous endeavour. "Aurora," refitted in New Zealand, eventually sailed south amidst considerable controversy to rescue the seven survivors.
